Pokemon GO’s next Spotlight Hour focuses on Magikarp – here are all the details you need to know:
In case you weren’t aware, Pokemon GO now hosts Spotlight Hours once a week. These weekly events all put a different Pokemon in the spotlight, with massively boosted spawns for that week’s ‘mon.
This time around Magikarp is the focus of the event, which makes sense given that the Water Festival is still ongoing in Pokemon GO!
Make sure you claim all the free Water Festival rewards for a stylish Lapras and more. Meanwhile, Niantic is apologizing to fans about the end of the Air Adventures event.
As compensation for issues, players can now claim free Mega Latias & Latios Energy in Pokemon GO. Don’t miss out!
Pokemon GO Magikarp Spotlight Hour Date & Time
The Magikarp Spotlight hour will take place on Tuesday, May 17, from 6 – 7 PM local time.
In addition to increased Magikarp spawns, players can also enjoy a Spotlight Hour bonus, giving 2XP for all evolutions that take place during the event.
Why not use the free daily box trick to get a lucky egg, and quadruple your evolution XP?
Of course, it’s worth noting that Magikarp itself requires a whopping 400 Candy to evolve, so you’d better get catching if you want that Gyarados!

Is Shiny Magikarp in Pokemon GO?
Yes, Shiny Magikarp’s golden form does make an appearance in Pokemon GO and you can catch it during the Spotlight Hour. Bear in mind, however, that Spotlight Hours do not offer increased Shiny Rates, just an opportunity to find more Magikarp in the wild.
Don’t miss out on your chance to get Mega Blastoise in Pokemon GO right now! After all, you can get even more Mega Energy for the ‘mon through the Water Festival.
